    Lightning Storage

    Was looking for an iPhone External Storage device that was ease of operation, stylish, and sufficient storage. This item was unknown to me as only a tag was on the hangar rail at this Best Buy. Had the associate explain varied models and he said he would check if new stock had arrived. The LEEF iBridge device he described as highly efficient and the app was easy to navigate. Purchased same as my Christmas stocking stuffer. It was well packaged, one could say bullet proof too get to the device. No instruction sheet but there was a 'How it Works' in 3 steps near the device. There was mention of an App but no title for same. So I went for same and plugged in the unit and setup was easy even to taking to App setup. Device does--media, manage files, camera, and transfer photos. Played around with the 4App modes and all performed easily. Transfers were fast. one note--depending on the phone case if used the thickness of the case makes it hard to install device which you may have to remove to make for an easier device install .hooking to computer was simple and got immediately usb recognized. Depending on software will help you locate files. Like how it has an easy operating functionality.

    Memory Boost

    After purchasing a new iPhone with half the memory of my previous phone, I sought additional memory to store photos, files, etc. I first tried another brand of lightning memory drive. It worked fine with my iPad but was just a little too large to fit in the space provided by the iPhone protective case. I tried the Leef iBridge instead. It fits like a glove and makes good contact. After installing the Leef app it was very easy to use the Leef iBridge to download photos. It worked quickly but I do not have a control against which to compare. The bend fits nicely around my protective over but I do not know if it is flexible enough for a heavy duty cover. The Leef iBridge contains a USB 3 port at the other end. The iBridge also comes with a protective/storage cover. It must be removed before use. Although it has a keychain loop, I don't think it would hold up well attached to a keychain.

    It's a great way to avoid the dreaded "not sufficient storage" message on your iPhone when you are trying to get the perfect picture or video of a unique moment. Many times you don't get a chance to download files out of your phone or are in a remote location (i.e. amazing vacation) without wifi or data and can't save them on the iCloud...you are trying to capture that perfect image and bam!!! 'Not sufficient storage space' hits you...by the time you delete a few files and free up space, the moment is gone. This clever little memory stick can be a "perfect memory" saver. It's also great to quickly transfer files to/from your iPhone or iPad to any other USB capable device. It's compact, light, easy to use and can save you in a pinch.

    Horrible and frustrating

    I have an iphone6 and like many other reviewers, I wanted to transfer photos and video to this device. It worked for the first 40-50 photos just fine. It started to work intermittently. It shows transfered, reading 100% complete, but never actually transferred the photos. I deleted photos I thought were transferred to the device. After deleting the app, starting over, restarting my phone...same issues! It's going back to Best Buy tomorrow! I should have purchased the SanDisk version. My mom purchased the SanDisk at a different Best Buy location and hers works fine.

    I purchased the ibridge3 to transfer all of my photos from my iPhone. After many attempts only some of my photos transferred. Yet, is said 100% transferred. Unfortunately I tried to return or exchange the ibridge3 more than 15 days after purchase to Best Buy. I was told I would have to go through the company. Leef said it was because some of my pictures went into the iCloud. Out of 1212 only around 300 transferred. I do believe it is defective. I'm still waiting for someone to help me. They weren't any more helpful than Best Buy. I didn't know there was a 15 day return policy. When I questioned why it didn't say it on my receipt, I was told it was on the web site. So, I guess I'm stuck with a useless ibridge3.

    I bought this USB flash drive so that I would be able to view and update files between my iPad and my windows laptop. I was caught up in the no tax weekend while purchasing my Dell laptop and bought this item without understanding how it worked just to sav the tax. Before trying it I then did my research. This flash drive is only useful for storing and opening picture or music files between iPads and windows laptops. I want something that I could use to open, transfer and modify spreadsheets and word documents between my iPad and my laptop but this item does not do that so I returned it. I cannot recommend this item since I did not use it.

    Simple solution to storage

    The leef product is quite a simple solution to everyday problems when using an iPhone. No more days of running out of storage any longer! Once you plug in your leaf device your iPhone recognizes exactly what it is and prompts you to download the app. From the app all you need to do is transfer your storage and wallah that's it! With this model specifically it has a USB integrated directly into it which makes for very simple transferring of data. Amazing product!

    Purchased to transfer itunes songs from iPad to iphone. Product literature stated the item would allow downloading songs from iPad to iBridge, then tranfer to iphone. Turns out, you cannot, or I was unable to complete in a simple way. Could be user error - if so, my apology to the maker, as the product is certainly well constructed. Definitely a software challenge. It could be an itunes issue (moving songs)

    Works great, the transfer rate from my phone to the Leef was very fast, for a huge album (1700+ pics). It has already survived going through the laundry when I forgot it in my pocket last weekend! You do have to remember to open the Leef app before you plug it into your phone, to get the transfer option. Also, if you have an otter box, you have to peel back the lower rubber skin for it to fit.

    Great For Saving Storage Space

    I heard about this from a friend and went ahead and purchased the flash drive so that I could move photos and files from my phone to my computer. I found that it was very easy to use as you would us any flash drive on a PC. The reason I didn't give it 5 Stars was because it doesn't work if you have a thick case on the phone. You would have to remove the case in order to use the flash drive. Other than that I love it.

    I think this an awesome product, simple plug and play. I had worries it wouldn't fit with my iPhone case on but it worked great. I would give 5 stars but it has a little bit of a lag in telling you where it is in the moving of files. One minute it is on 6% then it stays like that for 20 minutes, then all of a sudden it's at 50%. But that is really the only thing I can say bad about it.

    The instructions in the box doesn't tell the user that there are steps which have to have action or the commands come up in numeric code. II returned a second time to BBuy and a Member of the Geek Squad assisted me in setting it up for print access. My advice: Don't leave the store until a Geek assists you in setting up transfers to your printing device or laptop.

    I purchased the Leef iBridge flash drive for one reason only. I travel a lot overseas and needed a way to watch movies on the go using an iPad with NO internet connection. I was able to load movies in several formats such as mp4, mkv, mov4, etc and all played well with the iPad. No problems at all. Only wish I had purchased one with larger capacity.

    Perfect for my wife who can't use cloud services for certain work related documents. This device permitted her to move docs from her iPad Pro to her work PC securely, with using email or cloud services. Would have been 5 stars if it was a bit more flexible. The rigidity may prevent using if device is in some cases.

    You don't need to charge it. it can store PDF files as well as videos and pictures. I have an older Mac (10.6.8 OS, which I need to use some software which require pentium processor) so it is difficult to mount. At least that's what I think. Once it finally does, it works. I'm using it on a "memory challenged" iPad.

    I've used this to transfer photos and videos between a McBook, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 7. It was a very intuitive process to migrate using the iBridge app on the iPhone. After inserting the Leef into the iphone, you are guided through the procedures to get and install the app.

    This is my first time to use a flash drive to my iphone. I have too many photos and videos on my iphone. I do not have enough storage anymore because of this. This Leef-iBRIDGE Lightning Flash Drive is easy to use. And transferring pictures and videos is not complicated.

    This little flash drive couldn't be more simple and seamless. One you download the Leef app it's so easy to get pictures and videos moved from one place to another. It's small, compact and the Lightning connection eliminates the need for adapters that don't always work.

    I was very happy with the simplicity of using this product, Worked great with no issues, the reason i only gave 4 stars is because the holder that comes with this is cumber-son at times. I had an earlier model that came with a hard snap on type of holder that worked very well.
